A sailor was rescued 11 hours after issuing a mayday call as his yacht was battered and dismasted by strong winds.
The call for help first went out at 4.50pm yesterday with the Maritime and Coastal Agency getting reports of a trimaran vessel at risk of capsizing.
British navy vessel HMS St Albans located the yacht 18 miles south of Portland, off the coast of Weymouth, just before 4am.
The sailor was thought to be the only person on board and was rescued by the RNLI lifeboat from Weymouth.
It followed a full-scale air and sea search including coastguard rescue helicopters.
